Ive already made a couple "which camera" threads. and yet I still cant decide. Ive gone from wanting the D3000 to D5000 to D90 and all over the place. I realized my dream of the D90 has fallen short, I just cant afford a nice lens and a D90, so im giving up the better body for a better lens. Im planning to buy a body then buy a seperate lens. However I just cant choose which body to buy, Ive read "vs." articles. Looked at vs. specs and just about everything else. The D5000 has less megapixels yet its a faster camera. But the T1i/500D has a better movie mode. Which one should I chose? Im thinking of doing this the classic way and walking into the store and holding both in my hands and deciding on that because thats what many people say to do for advice on TPF.
